Lord of the Flies – Ralph Considers Alliances

If you did not start at the beginning please go back to the introduction.

Ralph Considers Alliances

While the hunting party is away Ralph talks to Piggie and Simon.  These are the only three who have not painted their bodies.  Ralph realizes Piggy is a critical member of his cabinet, but fails to give him the credit he deserves.  In addition, while Ralph does not overtly put Simon down for his differences, he also does not embrace this diversity and use it to his advantage.  He had the opportunity to form the perfect team to lead the inhabitants of the island, but his ego stood in the way.
